Janice Kai Chen at the Washington Post on pigeons versus the internet:

At certain data volumes and distances, the pigeon is a quicker option for large swaths of rural America, where internet speeds can lag far behind the national average.

And not just rural America. As I write this from the nation’s capital, reports 24 Mbps up. Federal agencies should bring back pigeons for sending large files back and forth.
